Hey I've just launched a new design for my website & I'm currently working through all the content updating it to the new layout. This post hasn't been checked yet so it might look a little off.

6 — Dream’s Helm

“One of you has my helm; my mask of pure dream. I crafted it myself, from the bones of a dead god.”

Dark & windy tonight, I thought my Apollo was going to fully take off & end up in the river. Still managed to get just the right mood from my shot, the lines from the bridge frame it nicely. It’s late so watch the video for all the details.

Amazing how much moving the back light a meter left can change the feel of the whole image.
